How to make the most of the best man-made diamonds in Melbourne
Looking for the finest jewellery from man-made diamonds in Melbourne? The only name you need to know is Franco Jewellers.
You deserve more than a charming piece of jewellery. You deserve a thing of rare beauty and that is what you can have with help from the true experts in exquisite jewellery.
There is a strong move in Australia to make the most of precious resources. This has contributed to the growing demand for the best man-made diamonds Melbourne couples are now choosing.
Making sure you have a beautiful piece of jewellery is still the priority but knowing that it can be brought to life using man-made (or lab-grown) diamonds is a precious thing in itself.
What are the differences between man-made and mined diamonds?
It is a common misconception that man-made diamonds are inferior to those mined from the ground.
It can be surprising to some that there are actually advantages to choosing man-made or lab-grown over a mined diamond.
Looking at the differences means you can make a more informed decision before you choose a diamond for your own special ring or jewellery piece.
The only real difference between the two types of diamonds is that one is man-made and the other occurs naturally. That is basically where the story ends.
There are still questions that remain for some people to be convinced of the similarity.
- Can you see the difference between a man-made diamond and a mined one?
No. There is no visible difference between the two. It would take a trained gemmologist using specialised equipment to tell them apart.
- Is a natural diamond stronger than a man-made one?
No. Both diamonds are real and are as strong as each other. A synthetic diamond or cubic zirconia does not have the same strength.
- Will a mined diamond outshine a man-made diamond?
No. A man-made diamond has just as much fire, sparkle and scintillation as a mined version. The appearance and radiance is the same for both.
- Does a man-made diamond last as long as a natural one?
Yes. A man-made diamond is just as durable and hard-wearing as a mined one.
- Will both diamonds hold the same value over time?
No. A mined diamond can actually increase in value over the years. This is because of the rarity of a naturally made diamond as well as the fact that there are more man-made diamonds on the market.
It’s important to remember that you will be saving a large sum by choosing a man-made or lab-grown diamond. That price difference is set to become even wider and the savings more pronounced.
Eventually, it all comes down to personal choice.
No-one but you and a professional jeweller will know if the diamond you wear is man-made or mined. There is certainly no quality difference in the diamond because of how they are sourced.
How would you like your diamonds to be sourced?
This is where personal choice comes into the equation more clearly.
It is often thought that sourcing diamonds that have been mined from the earth is riddled with moral complications and environmental issues.
There is less energy and resources required to make a lab-grown diamond than have a natural diamond dug up from the ground. It also passes through less sets of hands so tracing the creation of the diamond to its source is much simpler.
There are advantages to both types of diamonds.
The advantages of a mined diamond
A mined or natural diamond has one key advantage over its man-made counterpart and that is its ability to hold or increase in value.
The key factor in this is that all the naturally occurring diamonds have already formed over millions of years. There will be no more created naturally and that is why they hold such a high price tag and will increase in value over time.
The advantages of a man-made diamond
While lab grown or man-made diamonds mean less of an environmental impact, their biggest advantage is in the pricing.
There is a significant saving in choosing a man-made diamond over a mined diamond, often as high as 30% or more. That means a larger stone for a better price. The difference in cost is the major reason for choosing man-made diamonds for an engagement ring or other diamond jewellery piece.
It is vital that you know you are dealing with a trusted jeweller when it comes to diamonds and that they have all the certification and photo valuation.
